can send us a message by twitter. here is the front page above the fold in "the washington post" -- as a ben bernanke is reappointed, the announcement will come this morning from an elementary school. here is what mr. obama will say "as an expert on the causes of the great depression i'm sure that ben never imagined he would be part of the team responsible for preventing another." he purged the collapse with calm and wisdom with bold action and thinking outside the box. -- he approached that collapsed. these reporters indicate that mr. obama's decision had become the subject of growing speculation. in washington policy circles the president called the fed chairman to the oval office this past wednesday to offer him another four-year term. mr. ben bernanke then flew off to wyoming where he gave the defense of his controversial policies. one of the points, is that appointing a democrat such as janet yellen, alan blinder, would have been popular with many democrats, but a move by mr. obama to install his own person at the fed might have rattled markets and unsettled the foreign inv
